Rashad Jennings injury: Raiders RB passed concussion test

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

After missing Week 14, Rashad Jennings passed his concussion test and could return this week.

Rashad Jennings will likely return to the Raiders' lineup this week after the running back passed his concussion tests on Monday, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Jennings suffered a concussion in Week 13 against Dallas. He practiced on a limited basis last week, but was not medically cleared to play in a game. Now having passed the required tests, Jennings will likely return to practice on Wednesday and play on Sunday against Kansas City. The 28-year-old is having an excellent season for Oakland and will become a free agent after the season.

Oakland was also without Darren McFadden on Sunday and instead turned to fullback Marcel Reece to handle the running back duties. Reece played well, finishing with 123 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. A combination of Reece and a healthy Jennings could give the Raiders a solid one-two punch over the final three games.

Jennings started five games this season. He's averaged 4.7 yards per carry, racking up 588 yards and four touchdowns on 126 attempts. He's also caught the ball well, with 28 receptions for 245 yards.
